IWRG (SUN) 10/07/2018 Arena Naucalpan [+LuchaTV, Black Terry Jr. (Flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Chef Benito & Death Metal b Latino & Toto
Latino replaced Shadow Boy.
2) Diablo Jr. b Black Shadow II
3) Capo del Norte, Capo del Sur, Séptimo Rayo b Metaleón, Multifacetico 2.0, Rokambole Jr.
4) Hijo del Alebrije b Hijo de Canis Lupus
5) Leo & Rafy b Ra-Zhata & Shil-Ka
Straight falls. Mask challenges followed.
6) Imposible, Súper Nova, Toscano DQ Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pitbull, Último Gladiador
Super Nova was listed, then replaced by a surprise, and the surprise turned out to be Super Nova. A Herodes run-in led to the tecnicos winning by DQ. Sangre Chicana Jr. also ran in. Herodes, Pirata and Chicana are now “Los Masters Juniors”
7) Aramis & Dragón Bane b Demonio Infernal & Freelance [Relevos Increíbles]
to the surprise of none, Aramis & Dragon Bane kept their masks.
8) Demonio Infernal b Freelance [mask, hair]
Infernal took Freelance’s hair
Main event sounds like it went pretty well. I’m betting Pirata, Herodes, and Chicana last three weeks as a team.
Super Nova says he’s not leaving AAA and will continue as both Bengala and Super Nova. What I think is happening is AAA isn’t booking Bengala that much and they’re allowing him to find his own bookings in his free time.
Tonight’s Puebla show has Volador versus Cavernario in a championship match. Sometimes, that’s among the best matches of the year. Sometimes, it’s that match they had a couple of Tuesday ago where they did not much. There’s no biggest match of the year coming up a few days later this time, but it also is Puebla. It’ll be worth watching if they care, and it’s hard to know if they will. All we know for sure is the first two falls will be short and pointless either way, and a title change seems unlikely.
The semi-main has Flip Gordon, Michael Elgin, and Mistico as an odd team against Negro Casas, Rey Bucanero and (maybe) Shocker. The (maybe) Gorillas del Ring take on Hechicero, Felino, and Templario. There’s a women’s match, and an opener with Asturiano, Rey Samuray, and Lestat – maybe the best Puebla tecnico trio they could put together. There’s a lot of maybes in this show. It starts at 9 pm CT on CMLL’s YouTube channel.
Add 11/10 in Orizaba to the list of upcoming AAA tapings. It’s being promoted locally but not yet officially acknowledged by AAA. Also, there’s a new poster for the 12/08 Xalapa show including Jeff Jarrett among Elite wrestlers. (Is Jarrett supposed to be part of Elite?) It certainly is interesting that Jeff Jarrett is advertised on these shows after his hair match against Dr. Wagner on 10/28.
If you lost your iPhone at The Crash show on Saturday, they have it and want to get it back to you. I don’t think most promotions would even try.
Villano IV said he was thinking about retirement at a lucha libre expo in Cuernavaca. Please do not run an expensive retirement show.
